Fishing in Norway is a part of the countrys cultural heritage and Norway now manages the largest and most sustainable cod stock in the world. The cod is beneficial for the Norwegian people both in terms of nutrition and for the coutrys economy – which is why the cod goes under the name The White Gold in Norway.

The cod is rich in protein, vitamin B12 and omega-3 and a meal-sized portion of Cod (about 150g) will naturally deliver the recommended daily intake of the vital omega-3 a person should get. To make sure you get your daily intake of omega-3 we provide you with a recipe: Lemon & Walnut Crusted Cod – enjoy.
